I used Headlight Revolution for the reverse lights. As also stated many times, the lights are good, the customer service not really. Posts here indicate to me that some have been satisfied with HR customer service, and some like me have not.
Here are a ton of reverse LED lights to pick from on Amazon -

So far, so good. No flicker, no problems.

I bought the same LED's as Poncho and I ordered those reverse lights yesterday. Anybody have any suggestions for parking and brake LED's?

Poncho, those headlight LED's work great and the fogs work decent but I wish they were a tad bit brighter. Overall, they do what they are supposed to do for me.

I picked up my led license plate bulbs from Walmart. They were sylvania led zevo. The bulb number was a 194. I also purchased the same brand for my reverse lights, so far so good!

I agree. I'm super happy with the headlights. If you installed the same fogs as me, I agree with you there also. They're satisfactory but not stellar. I don't use fogs a whole lot anyway. I was more interested in having the fogs match the white light of my lower headlights for DRL and they do that just fine.
One of our fellow posters went with a yellow or amber fog bulb replacement. Can't remember who at the moment. I'm curious as to how that worked out.

I've got some replacement 1156 coming for the rear lights on my skid steer loader. I'd have given the local Walmart a shot for that if I'd known they had them. Maybe I'll give them a shot on 194's for the license plate.
Oh well, live & learn!

so i wanna give these beamtechs a try. leaning towards the fan less model or is that older model and the fan one newer? i read on some online reviews about how the fan models can cause interference with the radio.how difficult is removing the halogens if i just remove the air dam and washer tube instead of removing the grill?

Install is pretty easy with those removed. Even easier with the LEDs since they have a pigtail connector. I had to use pliers to loosen the top bulbs though. The bottoms were hand tight, the upper wouldn't budge at all. Some people have luck tapping them with a flathead screwdriver to loosen but I had to get pliers to get mine loose

You'll like them. I bought the ones without the fan and they have been great so far (3 weeks or so). Did you buy two sets?
